we are just setting up for a drier night, a few clouds, but again, because the dew points are this high, above 55, there is a chance for a stray monsoon thunderstorm. so we'll look for that tonight in phoenix and up along the high country as well. when we look at the dew points around the city, 61 in wickenburg, there's a good chance we'll see some up that way, 56 in scottsdale, 58 in sky harbor, these are the dew points an indicator of how much moisture atmosphere for the rain to work with. we did get that rain this morning and the afternoon, and in the green indicating areas that have received rain. flagstaff with one and a third inch of rain, about a tenth of an inch up near the grand canyon, 16 hundredths near prescott, a tenth of an inch in winslow, a little bit more than a trace in show low, about a trace in safford, some in
